Magnesium Hydroxide Slurry Higher Alkalinity
Magnesium Hydroxide Slurry’s Higher Alkalinity vs. Caustic Soda and Hydrated Lime Decreases Wastewater Neutralization Costs
Not all alkalinity agents provide equal treatment. A very important metric in alkalinity technology selection is the amount of alkalinity contributed with each gallon injected into treatment systems. Greater alkalinity contribution offers lower amount of chemical agent required, lower chemical costs, and lower transportation costs. FloMag® H Magnesium Hydroxide Slurry is such a high-alkalinity contributer.
FloMag® H has a neutralization value that is 37% higher than caustic soda (NaOH). One (1) gallon of FloMag® H replaces 1.77 gallons of 50% caustic soda on an equal-alkalinity basis. Although lime slurry is lower in price on a volumetric or weight basis, magnesium hydroxide slurry contributes much more alkalinity per gallon. One (1) gallon of magnesium hydroxide slurry typically replaces 2.85 gallons of 34% hydrated lime slurry on an equal-alkalinity basis. The greater alkalinity contribution of FloMag® H contributes to its cost savings.
FloMag® H Magnesium Hydroxide Slurry is trusted by many of North America’s major corporations for wastewater neutralization, pH adjustment, and alkalinity supplementation by delivering a compelling envelope of technical, economic, and safety benefits.
